Once you’ve been born again, your spirit is entirely made new. Your body, however, with its habits and desires, remains unchanged and must be subdued and restrained. And your mind’s old ways of thinking must be renewed with God’s Word and overlaid with a new thought pattern, much like a chair is reupholstered with a new fabric over the old frame.
At times, unhealthy thoughts may creep in to steer your life off course. But you don’t have to entertain dead memories or act on old thoughts! As a new creation in Christ, discover how you can use your mind to set your affections on “things above” so you can walk in the victory Jesus Christ died to provide for you.
